Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

  • 42,000 miles
Vehicle engine stopped completely dead and was nearly rearended. Was not able to restart vehicle and was towed back to Volkswagen dealership. Volkswagen told me the high pressure fuel pump was bad and repair would cost $10,000 after a furious argument was told they would fix it. This problem has happened to many vehicles that have not reported it to NHTSA when are you going to put a stop to this major problem. Maybe when someone gets killed
